How to Make
1. For my 12” x 12” Santoro Willow
pearlescent paper, I have picked the doily die. I would recommend having a
rough idea where you would like to apply the textured paste onto your layout to
avoid any mistakes. Once you have decided, place your doily on the paper and cover
with a textured paste, when you remove the doily die you will have the shape of
the doily print left. I applied the print mainly around the centre of the
layout with one print added on the top left of the paper.
clean your die sets, use warm soapy water and a cloth.
2. Once the paste has dried, I spritzed
some magenta DecoArt mister around the page and removed the nozzle from the
black DecoArt mister to add a few droplets around the layout. Leave the acrylic
misters to dry.
Tip: If the
paper bubbles up, spray water on both sides and dry with a heat gun to flatten
3. I picked the distressed pink paper from the SANTORO®'s Willow A4 paper pad and cut it to an 18.4cm x 8cm rectangle. With a pair of
scissors, cut the corners into curved edges and add to the top half of the
layout. I then cut the brown decorative paper to 8.5cm x 2.5cm and stuck it to
the top of distressed paper.
4. Cut two doilies in half and with one
half, cut again to create quarters. Layer one of each quarter together with
double sided tape and add to the top right and bottom left of the distressed
paper. I added a dusky pink paper flower to the bottom left doily halves and
finished with a small pink resin flower.
5. I have planned to add my 9.1cm x 12.1cm
photo to the centre of the layout so I cut the SANTORO®'s Willow heart paper to
13.5cm x 10.7cm. I have then cut the paper with the Fiskars Fancy Edge Deckle
scissors to create a decorative frame for the photo. Stick the photo to the centre of the layout
with foam squares.
6. Cut a wooden frame in half using
scissors and tuck the one frame under the top right of the photo and add the
other under the bottom right and glue to the paper.
7. I then cut up strips of the lace
patterned paper from the SANTORO®'s Willow A4 pad and tucked two to the bottom
half of the photo on both sides. Cut scraps of the heart paper with the Fiskars
Fleur Border Punch and stick on top of the lace paper strips.
8. Die cut two lots of tickets using the
Fun Fair ticket die with the SANTORO®'s Willow pink polka dot and heart paper.
Staple three tickets to the top right of the layout and add a cut out strip of
the lace pattern paper on top. I added two remaining tickets either side of the
9. Take the doily halves you have left
over and layer them on top of each other and stick to the bottom corner of the
page. I have cut another lace patterned paper into a strip and layered on top
of the doilies to cover the cut edge. Cut a paper blossom in half and stick the
two halves together and stick to the left of the lace paper strip. To decorate,
add a resin flower to the centre.
10. I have added a SANTORO®'s Mirabelle
metal corner to the top left and bottom right of the photo frame and glued a
coordinating resin flower to the centre. I then added some glitter stickers to
the opposite corners of the frame and next to frame on the right.
11. To complement my colour scheme, I used the
Dovecraft pink ink and stamped the sentiment ‘Beautiful Moments’ on to a piece
of plain white card. Cut the sentiment to size and add to the left of the
layout using foam squares.
12. As a finishing touch, add a SANTORO®'s Willow
metal pin to the top right of the photo frame and glue black sequins in a
variety of sizes around the page.
